cheer a girl up

There's been an emptiness in my life. For a long time. Something missing. Or some things missing.

I've tried to fill it through various means. Diversions. Distractions.

Some kept me busy for a while. Others didn't even begin to fill the hole. None seemed to work completely.

Finally the papers came along with a bit towards getting things back to where they were. It would never truly be back. But this would help a bit.

I knew what I needed to do. I knew exactly what I wanted. And I knew exactly where to get it.

It would make me happy, help me to forget the last week. Forget the pain I'd been feeling for even longer.

What cheers every girl up? Why, shopping, of course.

But for me it's not typical retail therapy, it's a trip to my favorite camera store. Finally.

Try some decent 'music therapy' too. That always helps. Cheers & Good Luck! 'VJ'

I'm a huge proponent of retail therapy : )

That sounds like a brilliant idea. Retail therapy gets a bad rap, but sometimes there's nothing like it to fill in the gaps and send us off in new, fun directions.

Wish I could be there to shop with you!!! (Although I use disposable cameras, you you're probably better without me!)

I am so excited for you!
So what are you leaning towards? Digital? Film?
Nikon? Canon?
I sure am loving my D40...

Anyway... Congrats!
